I wish it was bedtime, but I still have a couple hours to go since it's only noon here. *sigh*
Jasmine was up all night with a cough and a congested nose, I'm already seeing the cold coming again. Seriously, how many colds does a person have to go through during this crazy weather??? You know how it's always really hot here in Arizona? Well now every morning it's COLD, I mean, not snowy ice cold but enough to make you see your breath in front of your face, then within 2 or 3 hours it's HOT, really hot, hot where you wear short sleeves and sometimes shorts. Not good for the body I tell you.
Anyway, I dragged myself out of bed this morning and fixed waffles for everyone, then headed out to the commissary for groceries.
No matter how hard I try and even cutting back on some things and going for the cheapest on others, I just can't get out of spending $250 for two weeks of groceries. Just can't! It's even weirder because there were times in Idaho where I remember the money being really tight, you know the "living from pay check to pay check" kinda thing??? We've all been there!
I would pay the bills and end up with about $150 for groceries and I made do, and it worked. Now?!?!?!? I don't know, can't do it.
Though I have noticed though that things here in Arizona are a lot more expensive than Idaho.
Before leaving for my errands this morning, I took some pictures of the sky, it was just gorgeous and I love how the rising sun leaves this beautiful pinkish hue on the clouds.
One great thing about being a military family is that you soon learn to cut your own hair, well the boys at least. So it's typical for a military family to buy a set of hair clippers very early on.......in this house, unless you're a girl, your hair WILL get cut in the bathroom. LOL
So here's Nicholas haircut, his was just getting so long and it honestly looked like he had a bowl underneath his hair, that's how tall and weird it was looking. After getting it cut by Curt last night, he looked back at the mirror and said "Wow daddy, I look really cute" to which daddy replied "Yes, son, you really do" LOL
And this one I just had to show you. He has stunning big eyes with these HUGE eyelashes, it reminds me a lot of my Great Grandfather Eduardo, the same eyes. So this ones is for my family in South Africa to see.
This one is just funny, I was sitting here trying to blog and Nicholas called me and snapped the picture. LOL Be nice people because I HATE having my picture taken and can find tons of wrong things with me.
The Superbowl is upon us and you won't believe the craziness around here. The Cardinal Stadium is about 5 minutes down the road from us, I've actually showed you pictures before that we took. It's just pandemonium now, but we're trying to get near it tomorrow to get some pictures, also on base we will have Jason Bell and Ray Crockett signing autographs and taking photos so we're heading to the BX tomorrow for that. Can't wait :)
I got my Christy movies from Netflix yesterday. A New Beginning and A Change of Season and I have already watched one LOL AND I finished the actual book and loved it, it was soooooo good.
Next on my list from Netflix is the Series "Tales from Avonlea" followed by "The Road to Avonlea" which is a pretty big series actually, it will take me a while to get through those LOL
Well I better get going, I need to check the bank and pay some bills and all that fun Pay Day stuff. Have a great friday everyone!
